Wrexham co-owner Rob McElhenney has jokingly hinted at a move for Gareth Bale after Wales qualified for the World Cup.

The Wales legend saw his free kick deflect past the Ukraine goalkeeper for the only goal in Sunday's tense play-off for a spot in Qatar.

It sparked emotional scenes in Cardiff as Wales reached their first World Cup in 64 years as Ukraine were valiant in defeat, some of their players in tears after the final whistle.

Bale's immediate future remains up in the air with his contract at Real Madrid - rumoured to be worth north of £500,000 a week - expiring at the end of the month.

The 32-year-old will now likely want a new club to keep fit ahead of the November tournament, and a tree transfer to Cardiff has been mooted.

But McElhenney may have another idea up his sleeve, according to a tweet posted soon after the final whistle.

Quote-tweeting a tweet asking where Bale could be playing next season, he replied: "I’ve got a few ideas."

Maybe we will see Bale rock up at the Racecourse Ground come August.
